Control Voice: (opening narration) The race of man is known for its mutability. We can change our moods, our faces, our lives to suit whatever situation confronts us. Adapt and survive. Even amongst the most changeable living things man is quicksilver, more chameleon-like than the chameleon, determined to survive no matter what the cost to others or to himself.
Mace: I don't think you understand me, General. I'm not interested in becoming a hero. Nor do I have an overdeveloped sense of duty. I'm doing this because I'm nothing more than an instrument for action. Mr. Chambers knows that also. Between missions, I cease to exist. I am what I've done, and that's not always very pretty. But being ugly is better than being nothing. I have no one, I care for no one, and I'm care for by no one. So all I have is what I can do.
Control Voice: (closing narration) A man's survival can take many shapes and the shape in which a man finds his humanity is not always a human one.
